Saw a short film from Billy Yang last night that implies he has a couple of new features coming out (hopefully) soon.

Sweet. I've just signed up to Netflix too, so I can finally watch that Barkley film.

It's a tough watch but amazing at the same time.

Has anyone see the Nepalese FKy one with Ryno Griesel and Ryan Sandes yet? That's supposed to be pretty sweet.

Want to start next year with some small fell races and build up to bigger ones. Anyone got some good recommendations? Preferably in the peak district, purely as that is closest to me. Lakes & Dales are a long way to go for 5-10k run Smile

Don't mind if they are hard, or require nav (been on a training course for map and compass). Plenty to chose from out there so which are good, and which are welcoming of outsiders and noobs?

Yes , worth a watch - I was in Nepal last month trekking to Base Camp what they did was just amazing.

Also recommend Kilian Jornet's Path To Everest.

Then if you DNF you need to get the points again and re-do the ballot (ahem).


No - you still need to have the necessary number of qualifying points in year 3 - the points after a race only last for 2 years if I recall correctly


ah, that's my mis-reading / mis-understanding then

Have a look on the FRA website, they have a calendar on there and you can see the locations they are, quite a few in the peak district.

I've done some of the classics in the Lake district, worth doing when you get a bit more experience but unless you've walked\ran round there before you might find them different to your local ones.

I do a lot in North Yorkshire but most of ours aren't much more than trails with no long ascents\descents, and a lot less craggy than the lakes. They tend to be up and down regularly rather than say 4 miles up, 4 miles down.

Only downside of some of them is that you need to provide evidence of long races (and the mandatory kit).

But something like Fairfield Horseshoe is probably worth travelling for

Not sure if this was posted earlier, but it has made the Beeb- for mostly the wrong reasons

Signed up for 1) Three Forts and 2) race to the king

About a 4 hour marathon runner so not very fast.

Never done an ultra before so any tips very welcome particularly about best run/walk protocol and what shoes ?

Thanks

Hey fatpom

My wife and I are booked on the 6:15 transfer from Winchester park and ride
I think we are Start time 7:45 as well.

We a bit out of shape post kids so not expecting much performance wise.
But hoping to be done by midnight.

Was hoping for 14 miler play in the north downs this Saturday but may wimpy out if the weather is bad.

RTTK should be fun looks forward to it. You done similar before ?

Good to hear Smile I booked the 5.45 as I had no idea how muffing is req'd before the start with bags etc and decided to play safe.

I've not done anything like this, never ran past 42.2kms before. I have a full program in the next few weeks, namely:

Bramley 20 miler
Winchester 10km
Reading HM
The General. (20km trail race in Winchester)

I'm counting 14wks back from the race with a two week taper, I think that's early March. Still trying to fit 4 ride sessions in per week and 3wks before RttK, I'm doing the 106 mile SDW mob ride with a mate.

I did a 26km run last Sunday at 5.28/km pace as right now, I'm looking to break 3hrs at Bramley. The long runs for RttK will start in March/April.

Unsure whether to enter RttS to get my 8pts. (assuming I survive RttK haha)
